function Get-DscResourceParameterInfo {
      Retrieve the DSC Parameter information, if possible
      Given a DSC Resource Info object, introspect on the source (if possible) to return information about
      the resources parameters, including their help text, whether or not they are mandatory for calling the
      resource with the Get method, and whether or not they are mandatory for calling the resource with the
      Set method.
      This information can be reliably retrieved if the DSC resource is implemented in PowerShell and is
      not class based. Otherewise, best guesses are made about the mandatory status of the parameters via
      the Required attribute and the help information is null.

      A Dsc Resource Info object, as returned by Get-DscResource.

      Retrieve the Parameter information from the AST for the PSRepository Dsc Resource.
